WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

The Time Is Now is a campaign run by The Climate Coalition, the UK’s largest group of people dedicated to action against climate change.

Along with our sister organisations Stop Climate Chaos Cymru and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, we are a collective of over 140 organisations — including the National Trust, Women’s Institute, Oxfam, and RSPB — and 22 million voices strong. We are reaching across the UK to show our love for all the things we want to protect from climate change, and to ask politicians to put aside their differences and commit to doing whatever is necessary to protect them.

WHY NOW

WHY NOW

We are at a turning point. Our best chance of building a stronger economy goes hand in hand with tackling climate change. By working together, investing in growing clean industries and preserving green spaces we can build a cleaner, fairer world for future generations, instead of locking in pollution for decades to come.

The UK will be the hosts of the UN Climate Summit - also known as COP26 - next year. This is our opportunity to lead the world into a greener future, but first we need to invest in the solutions to climate change at home. Ahead of the summit, the UK must lead the world by ensuring our recovery gets us on track to net-zero emissions and limits the rise in the global temperature to 1.5 degrees C.

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

We are launching a Declaration addressed directly to the Prime Minister. We are bringing together businesses, community groups and people from all walks of life to send a strong and unified message that we want to see the UK forge a resilient recovery for a healthy and safer world, and inspire other countries to follow.

We’re also going to be championing climate ambition the whole way through to COP26, while supporting communities to get active throughout the country.

WHY IS COP26 SO IMPORTANT?

WHY IS COP26 SO IMPORTANT?

World leaders meet annually at UN climate summits - known as COPs - to discuss how to address the climate crisis by limiting greenhouse gas emissions and restricting the rate the world is warming. COP26 is a major check-in point to review countries’ ambitions on climate action and is absolutely critical in getting the world on track to limiting heating of our planet to below 1.5 degrees C.

We know that we must reduce our greenhouse gas emissions urgently to limit the rise in global temperature. We are already seeing the people, places and lives we love affected by climate change at home and abroad. What gets decided at the COP26 will set a pathway for the global community for years to come. That’s why the time is now ever to use our voices to call for actions that protect what we love from the climate crisis
